Medcon receives FDA clearance for its innovative haemodynamic monitoring system, Windsurfer

Whippany 06 July 2005Medcon Telemedicine Technology Inc., a global expert in cardiac image and information management solutions, has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its new haemodynamic monitoring system, Windsurfer. Windsurfer is marketed and sold separately, or together with Medcon's TCS Symphony image management solution for unrivaled integration of cardiac images and data in the cath lab.


"The market has witnessed a transformation in haemodynamic systems - they have gone from basic monitoring systems to integral parts of the complete catheterization process", stated Uzi Blumensohn, CEO Medcon Telemedicine Technology Inc. "Significant portions of procedural data, as well as work flow procedures, are controlled by the haemodynamic monitoring system. That's why it was a natural decision for Medcon to expand our current product offering to include Windsurfer, a new and powerful haemodynamic monitoring system. Windsurfer streamlines the cath lab work flow and aggregates all data into one cardiac electronic medical record, complimenting our existing image and information management solution."

The Windsurfer haemodynamic monitoring system uses cutting-edge technology to deliver a powerful solution with complete flexibility for personalized configuration that melds into the complex cath lab work flow.

The functionality and graphic interface of Windsurfer were designed with the help of a steering committee consisting of health care professionals. This approach to product development helped Medcon design an application that is truly intuitive to use, and addresses the most common issues encountered in the actual working environment.

"Time and again our customers tell us that one of their favorite Medcon software applications is our reporting tool, and Windsurfer further strengthens our report application", continued Uzi Blumensohn. "Waveforms, haemodynamic data and procedural data are automatically populated into the final procedure report."
